Think Valentine in Boston was good for press clippings? Guillen last year in Miami?

Bowa in Miami will beat them both. He won’t make any racial insults, but that guy is one loudmouth (worse than Valentine) that has an ego larger than the Goodyear blimp and full of the same amount of hot air as well.

It will be glorious should they hire him and kinda’ funny listening to Tommy Hutton on FoxSports attemtping to figure out what the heck Bowa is doing sometimes…

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let the Feesh hire him. Toby Harrah and Bull Durham are such better options than Lloyd for the Tigers at hitting coach

because coaching a triple crown winner and making austin jackson a better hitter are a bad thing. 😛

If Cleveland has named Alomar as bench coach how does that affect the Jays if they decide they want him as Manager? Do they now have to ask permission or provide compensation to hire him?

Not normally. Teams don’t usually block coaches from promotions.

The Indians coaching staff is stacked, if only the team actually had some talent

Francona is going to have a pretty decent coaching staff. Cash struck me as coaching material when he played. Just not hitting coach.

I’ve been surprised McClendon, Lamont and Belliard haven’t received more interest. They have all been with Leyland for a long time, they must have learned something.
